War Zones in America


Do not murder. ~ Exodus 20:13, CJB

You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Do not murder,’ and that anyone who commits murder will be subject to judgment. But I tell you that anyone who nurses anger against his brother will be subject to judgment; …. ~ Matthew 5:21-22a, CJB

Yeshua said to him, ‘Put your sword back where it belongs, for everyone who uses the sword will die by the sword.’ ~ Matthew 26:52, CJB

A system cannot fail those it was never meant to protect. ~ W. E. B. DuBois  



Cops trippin’
Trigger fingers flippin’
Chokeholds grippin’
Life slippin’ . . .

What’s goin’ on
No longer just a song
From an era long –
Gone yet belongs
In archives about wrongs
Against darker skins:
Lives inundated
With hatred formulated,
Ideal end:
Exterminated . . .

Minds checked out
No doubt
On loan
To war zones:
Borrowed by
Inhumane guys
Wearing blue—
Who knew
Protect and serve
For a few?

Too many dyin’
Too many cryin’
Too many lyin’ . . .

Stop buyin’
The con
Justice system’s sellin’
Mainstream media’s peddlin’
It’s ALL smellin’
Like napalm . . . .
